“Decent place to stay in Osaka”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

My wife and i recently stayed here for two nights. It is a few of blocks from the station, and is not connected to the station as the name may imply. We had a twin room which was sufficiently large and very clean. The biggest complaint we had is that the bathroom was teeny. We stayed in a number of hotels while in japan, and this bathroom was the smallest by far. Breakfast was included, and they had a reasonable selection of western items, and was quite satisfactory. Unlike most of the places we stayed, there were no convenience stores nearby, and it was a fairly long walk to any restaurants. However, the rate we paid was quite reasonable, and we had a comfortable, safe stay at this hotel. If I were to return to Osaka, and wanted to be near the station, I would consider staying here again.

Everybody was very friendly and helpful. Just loved the small Japanese bath in the room. Great to relax in after running around all day. Loved the free skin care products, shampoo and conditioner. There is a small fridge in the room to keep drinks chilled. Also a small kettle. Loved that guests can have either a Japanese of Western Breakfast each day. Really close to Shin-Osaka station, i.e. to catch the bullet trains to Kyoto or Tokyo. The hotel noticed that I had my birthday and gave me a small gift.

I suggest that the hotel supply tourist info in English (E.G. maps of Osaka and Kyoto), otherwise guests have to walk back to Shin-Osaka station to get the info and the tourist office closes at 18:00.

The room is very small but clean and comfortable. Great location makes it convenient to go to different places from the shin-osaka station. They have only 2 breakfast menus: Japanese and western, but it was enough for us. nice service.

I stayed at this hotel in May. The location was perfect, just outside the Shin Osake station, convenient for both the bullet train and for getting into Osaka itself. The hotel was very pleasant though the wifi reception was not that wonderful.

I stayed at Shin-Osaka Station Hotel for 2 nights towards the end of my 9-day Japan trip. It was well located about 5 minutes' walk from the east exit of Shin-Osaka Station. Unlike the hustle of Osaka Central Station, the neighbourhood was more peaceful since it was a local residential / office suburb. There were a few eateries nearby but I did not recall seeing a supermarket. However, there was a tiny store at the basement of the train station which contained lots of restaurants.

My room 315 at level 3 was quiet. It was small but the bedding was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was functional but it appeared that there were no hand soaps. I was relieved to find complimentary bottled waters in the fridge since the previous hotels I stayed had none. Another plus point was the air-conditioning in the room worked very well. Wifi was only available at the cosy lobby. Signal was really good.

My room rate came with complimentary breakfast and during the 2 nights that I stayed, I had the opportunity to try both the Japanese and Western sets. They were delicious and the ladies and the reception staffs who chipped in to help were always very welcoming and professional.

Overall, while the hotel is not brand new, it was well maintained and manned by a team of helpful and professional staffs. I loved the location since I was making day trips to Kobe City and the Shin-Osaka Station had a direct express line that bring me there without much fuss. There were also convenient linkages to the Kansai Airport.

For the great prices I paid, I would strongly recommend this hotel to my friends. One of the reasons that my Japan trip ended on a perfect note was my good stay at Shin-Osaka Station Hotel.

Only 5-minute walk from the East exit of the Shin-Osaka Station. More of an inn than a hotel, which is fine with us since we were really just looking for a place to sleep for a couple of days. The rooms are clean and staffs are friendly. Of the three hotels we stayed in Japan, this has got to be the tiniest bathroom. We didn't get the chance to try their japanese breakfast, opting instead to eat out. There's a resto nearby which was open 24hrs and served simple but good food. We found the free massage chair in the reception area to be a neat idea. After tiring ourselves out for the day seeing the sights, 10mins in that chair proved very relaxing. Wifi was also good in the reception area although there was none in the room. There is wired cable which is good if you brought your laptop with you. Overall, the hotel fit our simple lodging requirements to a tee. So definitely worth coming back if we ever visit Osaka again.

I stayed in this hotel last year. We were 3 ladies travelling to Japan, our first trip. I wrote reviews of other hotels I visited except this hotel. We arrived the hotel in the late afternoon and were welcomed by the glass man at reception. We took the room key and went to our rooms. Then we realized that two rooms not next to each other. We dropped our lugguages in rooms and went down to the reception again. We asked for the room next to each other. The same man was angry on us. Sorry we just wanted to feel like we were staying together even it was not the same room. We were not reported this issue to management because of we didn't want to ruin our trip.

However, the room was nice and clean but weak wifi signal. My cousin had to sitting in front of the room to get the better signal. But we will not go back again.
